Check out the South Park 9/11 Conspiracy episode before it is taken down for copy write infringement. I enjoy South Park’s creativity and irreverence but some of the “humor” is just stupid.
Even though it “slams the conspiracy theorists”, this episode will get a lot of people to visit 911truth.org. It also provides, for people who don’t have the emotional ability to handle the facts, plenty of what I call the right wing security blanket: 4th grade name calling.
Anyway, the number of Americans who blame Bush/Cheney now is rising. It may have been 1/4th at the time this South Park episode was made, but the number has now risen to 36 percent. That’s over 100 million Americans. Quick, increase the fluoride! 😉
“A recent Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll of 1,010 Americans found that 36 percent suspect the U.S. government promoted the attacks or intentionally sat on its hands. Sixteen percent believe explosives brought down the towers. Twelve percent believe a cruise missile hit the Pentagon.”
South Park mentions the Pentagon hole and the explosives, but not the 9/11 conspiracy facts which are the most bizzare: 1. The CIA was conducting a plane into building “exercise” on 9/11. 2. Eventual CIA chief Porter Goss was meeting on the morning of 9/11 with Pakistan’s Ahmad whom we later learned paid 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta $100,000. 3. Cheney was in direct command and control on 9/11 of NORAD field exercises — some involving hijack simulations — taking place on that day. 4. These war games drew most US fighter jets away up north and put false blips put on radar screens, paralyzing our defenses. If you have only a few fighters and possibly 22 hijacked planes on radar, which ones do you intercept?

What was the value-added benefit for the 9/11 hijackers in turning off their transponder signals?
The planes remained visible to radar; the transponders merely ID’d the flights.
And yet the transponders of all four flights were switched off. What was gained?
I think the answer is found in the proliferation of war games on September 11, particularly the exercise called “Vigilant Guardian”: the live-fly simulation of hijackings in the US Northeast staged by the Joint Chiefs and NORAD the very morning of the attacks. (Health advisory to coincidentalists: chew carefully before digesting.)
At one time on 9/11, as many as 22 aircraft appeared to be hijacked. Suddenly, the virtue, now verging on necessity, of switching off the transponders becomes evident.
With loss of transponder signals the planes became bogies, and discriminating real from simulated hijackings became next to impossible.
This confusion compounded the paralysis already introduced to the system by drawing most of the Eastern seaboard’s combat-ready interceptors into Northern Canada for the wargame “Northern Vigilance,” and changing the standing orders for a shoot down in June 2001 by removing the discretion of field commanders and placing it solely in the hands of the Secretary of Defense. – oilempire
So, if you start looking at the facts (and many never do) you become either a conspiracy theorist or a coincidence theorist. There are an insane number of oddities and coincidences. The detail supporting the possible conspiracy is amazing. Read this guide to 9/11 coincidences. Here is another with many more.
